    Hello everyone!! My name is Scott and I'm in Richmond VA. I've been flying Jets both RC and full scale. When I'm not flying I'm a filmmaker and its always been a dream of mine to be able to combine the two. Currently been flying the TBS Discovery, QAV500 and the Flamewheel 550 with GoPro's trying to learn the ins and outs of the multirotor world. I will be building a C8 with gimbal shortly to fly the larger DSLR and Scarlet class cameras in conjunction with our production company. I've been reading a lot on this forum and really appreciate the experience, knowledge and willingness to share. I look forward to returning the favors one day to others as I hone my craft.

    Welcome Scott,

    We have a few things in common... flew R/C jets, real ones at work and photographer turned video guy with multirotors. You'll find the CS8 a nice step up in quality from what you've been flying. Is that a BVM -16 in your photo? Lookin good

    Hey Brad.... It's an Aviation Design F16 just getting ready to convert it to 2.4 and get rid of the Ant sticking up. I'm looking forward to the step up in quality with the Cinestar.

    Hey all. Dropping in to say what's up. Getting ready to start my CS8 build in a couple weeks so I'm getting familiar with the forum and how the angry and sad emoticons work on here...,:)

    I'll be cruising by there when I get back to the states next month for sure. I was pleasantly surprised when when I started doing my research a few months ago and found out they were up there. Montana is like a foreign country for most Americans.

    The "foreigners" seem pretty friendly, though. :)

    Hi Guys,
    My name is Grayson and I'm located in the beautiful beach town of San Clemente. I have a CS8 with KW8's installed but will soon be switching to bigger and better motors. I'll be at NAB this year and look forward to seeing what Tabb has up his sleeve. Major skunk works going on up there in Seattle ;)
    Anyway, this is this rig:

    Cheers,
    Grayson

    Hello Freeflyers!
    great forum with lots of interesting informations!

    my name is stefan hunziker, i live in geneva - switzerland and work as a professional photographer since 1998. for the last 32 years, i loved everything that involved flying machines and always spent a lot of time building and flying model airplanes. the last two years, i was experimenting with a hexacopter from a small french company - unfortunately it wasn't very reliable (like french cars) but i still got some good photos with it..... i decided to get a cinestar 8 for 2013 - i finally got it last monday. its equiped with the 360° gimbal, radians and mikrokopter electronics. right now its raining in geneva, so the first flight has to wait....

    Hello. I am Andrew from Wiltshire in the UK. I have been flying full scale and RC (helis, planes and jets) for many years and multicopters for the past three years. My background is I.T. although I am no programmer. I also have lots of enthusiasm, and some experience with photography and video.

    I plan to operate UAV's commercially and am taking Part One of the UK's BNUC-S in a couple of weeks. I hope to have completed my operating manual and flight test by the summer (if we ever get one here).

    My serious multi is a Vulcan 900mm hex running MT3515 motors and WKM flight controller. I have a CS3 gimbal running radians and set up for both single and dual operator flying using a combination of Futaba and Spektrum. I am very impressed with the CS3 and hope that in due course it will be upgradable to direct drive technology.

    I have already found lots of helpful information on this forum as a lurker. Now hoping that I can contribute as well as consume to this excellent resource.

    Andrew
